The Sunday Sale: Get Free Shipping on Orders Over $75 at Patagonia, Including This Rugged Fall Flannel

Shopping on a budget for the best fall style essentials can be a little tricky, and I say this as someone who loves investment-worthy menswear picks aplenty. So any amount of cash you can save is pretty crucial, right? And if you can do it with sustainability and style in mind, well, isn’t that all the better? Hence, today’s Sunday Sale: A look at garb like the best men’s workwear, as well as the fact that you can get free shipping on orders over $75 at Patagonia. The outdoor retailer is committed to activism and helping the environment, using upcycled, recycled or organic materials across its product line, which just so happens to feature some of the best rugged gear for men. I’m personally a fan of the Patagonia Farrier Shirt, which could be one of the best flannel shirts for fall. For starters, it retails for $89, so it meets the order cut-off nicely. That’s not all this rugged work shirt can do for you, and it’s far from the only nice steal you’ll find at Patagonia.

The Patagonia Farrier Work Shirt (again, just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the best gear right now at Patagonia) comes in a classic red-and-black pattern, plus essential solid colors. Best of all, it’s warm, it’s substantial, it wears nicely with Patagonia jeans and durable Patagonia work pants, and you needn’t pay extra for shipping. Take your pick between a rugged work shirt made with either industrial hemp and recycled polyester, or else one derived from 88 percent organic cotton and 12 percent industrial hemp. Either way, it’s still a darn-fine and mighty tough work shirt made to tackle fall and winter projects with ease. In fact, the entire Patagonia men’s line is packed with hard-working, sustainably gear delivered to your doorstep without over-the-top shipping fees. If that sounds like something you’d appreciate, then I’d say it’s about time you took advantage of free shipping on orders over $75 at Patagonia. If you like what you find, you can always let me know on Twitter. Happy fall, folks!

Made from 100 percent cotton flannel that happens to be super-soft, not overly bulky, the Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt is an ideal top layer over a rugged henley (similar to a shirt jacket), but it’s also going to wear nicely underneath a waxed Flint and Tinder jacket, too. And you simply can’t beat fall style options like the rich Walnut Rust Plaid shown above — it’s as if Flint and Tinder thought of everything with this rugged flannel shirt, to say the least.

Faherty Brand Review

Take your pick between seven cool and iconic patterns for winter style from Faherty Brand.

The best men’s flannel shirts have a few things in common, and yet this particular shirt rises above the rest. It’s made with soft organic cotton infused with stretch fabric for comfort and layering in these quarantine times. Better still, you can pick it up in one of seven cool and eye-catching patterns, including the classic Blue Rose Gingham seen above. The button chest pocket adds to the shirt’s more easygoing feel, giving it the sort of look that pairs easily with a thermal henley or a graphic tee for a pop of visual interest. And because it’s tailored but not overly tight, you can readily layer it up or wear it on its own, especially untucked with expertly faded denim or tan chinos. Throw on your favorite pair of leather boots and call it good (or rather, get out there and get a growler of local, brewery-fresh beer, yes?). The Faherty Brand Stretch Seaview Flannel Shirt  checks all the proper boxes these days, to say the very least. Make it yours and make it work for you.

Style Pick of the Week: Filson Western Flannel Shirt

The right way to layer up for chilly fall weather, guaranteed.

It’s high time we started diving into prime Pacific Northwest gear purveyor Filson, seeing as fall is perhaps the perfect season for this lauded heritage brand. And if it’s one of the best men’s flannel shirts that you seek for the season, then you should look no further than the Filson Western Flannel Shirt, a historically inspired, tough flannel shirt that cuts no corners when you want a dependable layer for chilly weather. This flannel shirt belongs on your list of fall style essentials for plenty of reasons, the least of which being that it’s got plenty of quality and versatility in terms of its specs. That shouldn’t surprise you if you’re a fan of Filson, but it’s still impressive. Namely, the Filson Western Flannel Shirt features the look and feel of a classic Western shirt, yet it’s done up in durable cotton twill fabric for uncompromising durability.

Yet, that cotton twill is also brushed for softness — in short, this is a classic flannel shirt that’s going to feel like you’ve had it for years … right out of the box. Bravo on that front, Filson. And the other positive? Because this durable shirt is crafted to the brand’s top-notch standards, it’s made to be worn both indoors and outdoors, in the worst weather imaginable, for years to come — it’s no joke. Snap-front pockets and button snaps make it easy to layer up underneath a tough waxed trucker jacket or atop a thermal shirt (or with all three of those pieces at once).

Tough hardware and comfortable fabric make this Filson flannel shirt one-of-a-kind, no questions asked.

Seriously, if you want one of the best flannel shirts for men, this is the way to go — and the price ($135 via Huckberry) isn’t too shabby, either. Consider, if you will, all the ways in which you can wear this Filson flannel shirt. For instance: Layer it over your favorite henley and team it with tough chore pants when early morning yard work calls your name. Or else, if you just want a surprisingly cozy flannel shirt to wear to out for morning coffee, take the Filson Western Flannel Shirt and mash it up with expertly faded denim. Heck, you can even team up this stylish flannel shirt with a classic shawl collar cardigan and tan chinos to head to the office (just add leather chukka boots). Again, the best men’s flannel shirts (like this one!) deliver the goods in terms of dependable fall style and durability — over and over and over again. Fall is here, and it’s time to layer up accordingly with Filson.

Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt

A rugged, Portuguese-made shirt from a brand that consistently delivers on style essentials.

There are brands that almost make it ridiculously easy to get all your shopping done in one place — if you read The Style Guide, you know that Taylor Stitch is definitely one such brand.  It seems that just about anything you need on the #menswear front can be fulfilled by the brand — that goes for things like essential chambray shirting, classic men’s chinos made from durable fabric, and a drool-worthy leather jacket or two, and it’s particularly evident during times best suited to rugged gear (like fall). If you thought you couldn’t possibly need another reason to shop at Taylor Stitch, think again. In this instance, gentlemen (and ladies), the Crater Shirt is that very reason — and it’s a heck of a good one. It’s available for pre-order right now on the brand’s Web site for the very reasonable price of $98 — that means you should hop on  ordering one just as soon as you can. Clearly, fans of the brand got the memo — the Navy & Charcoal Plaid version seen here has been funded to the tune 146 percent. Now, what are you getting for that price? Starting with the brushed Portuguese flannel and rolling through to small details like the flap chest pocket and Japanese Urea cat’s eye buttons,  a heck of a shirt is what you’re getting. It plays right into the brand’s focus on producing timeless pieces that quickly turn into hard-wearing wardrobe staples. If you’ve checked out something as seemingly straightforward as the brand’s Brushed White Oxford, then you know that sentiment to be true. No matter the style, you’re getting the best they’ve got to offer. With the Crater Shirt, that means you’re also getting to pick between two color choices practically made for late fall, early winter and beyond.

The inverse of the option seen at the top of the page -- yet still just as stylish and versatile.

The reverse of the option seen at the top of the page — a Charcoal & Navy Plaid pattern that’s still just as stylish and versatile.


Seriously, you can’t go wrong with either the Navy & Charcoal Plaid  seen at the very top of the page, or the Charcoal & Navy Plaid pattern seen above. Still with me? Hopefully. Either way, you’re getting a durable, modern-fitting flannel shirt that’s heavy enough to wear as a shirt-jacket over a long-sleeve merino tee, comfortable enough to wear on its own, and stylish enough to fit in at the office with slim chinos — or atop slim raw denim at your favorite weekend watering hole. By pre-ordering now, you’re setting yourself up for a heck of a stylish November (that’s when the shirt ships out). It’s a hallmark of the brand that the style is still one you could easily wear with a variety of looks — that goes for the snowy depths of January just as much as it does for crisp November days. If it sounds strange to think that far ahead, think of this as a long-term investment that’s well worth your while. Heck, if the Crater Shirt is anything like the brand’s lauded Yosemite Shirt, it’s absolutely a keeper. For all of us fans of Taylor Stitch, that’s excellent news indeed. What are you waiting for? Head to the Taylor Stitch site to pre-order the Crater Shirt now (that’s not a request!).

If you do pre-order it, let me know on Twitter — and stay stylish in the meantime,

Style Pick of the Week: Todd Snyder Hemingway Elbow Patch Shirt

Rustic yet refined at the same time -- the Hemingway Elbow Patch Shirt from Todd Snyder.

Rustic yet refined at the same time — the Hemingway Elbow Patch Shirt from Todd Snyder.

During my Christmas trip to Florida last week, I was pretty lucky to get some terrific gifts (mostly #menswear-inclined) from Santa. And among those gifts was none other than the standout Hemingway Elbow Patch Shirt you see at the top of the page from lauded American menswear designer Todd Snyder. The Midwest-born designer has been delivering on modern updates to heritage classics these past few years, and this soft cotton shirt with sturdy suede elbow patches definitely checks off some key boxes in that regard. Even better for you, my fellow menswear fan — it’s on-sale right now (marked down to $129 from $185). That price is still enough to scare people away, but given the brand’s history of quality and style, it might not be a bad way to spend your bonus. It’s great in another regard, too: As the weather gets colder, I’m all about incorporating texture into my wardrobe, from a wool bomber to a thick shawl cardigan and tough denim.The inclination toward richer textures goes for shirting as well, and it’s a move that you should consider making yourself — a cotton flannel shirt can serve a two-fold role; if it’s cut slim enough, you can wear it under a V-neck sweater, and if it proves to be hardy enough, you can definitely layer it over a henley (as I did on a trip to Grand Rapids this past fall).

Cold-weather style essentials with which to pair this shirt -- the Buffalo Bobber Glove from Iron & Resin, and a Merino Watch Cap from American Trench.

A closer look at the elbow patches and texture that make this piece special. Pictured with cold-weather style essentials ideal for the season — the Buffalo Bobber Glove from Iron & Resin, and a Merino Watch Cap from American Trench.

The grey plaid of this shirt is understated, and the spread (not buttondown) collar means this shirt leans a bit dressier than most flannels — especially when worn under something like a slim navy blazer. Crucially, the elbow patches add a nice bit of visual interest and a vintage look when the shirt is worn on its own.  In fact, it could be a neat style swerve to ditch the jacket and throw on a slim herringbone tie and some tan chinos for an office-ready take. Throw in some brown leather sneakers and that look could be complete. Of course, this shirt is probably going to work best alongside rugged denim and sturdy winter boots, maybe even underneath a vest if you’re feeling particularly rugged. The slim collar and muted colors make it dressy, but those elbow patches and the rustic pattern make it rugged — that’s exactly what you need in a shirt this winter.

Style Pick of the Week: Frank & Oak Plaid Light Flannel Shirt

Another modern shirting release from Frank & Oak for consideration in your wardrobe.

Another modern shirting release from Frank & Oak for consideration in your wardrobe.

Here on The Style Guide, I write a lot about excellent seasonal pickups, from trim fall and winter blazers to slim corduroys. There’s one brand that nails some of those seasonal pickups better than the rest, though. If you’ve kept up with the digital #menswear scene and the digital pages of this blog (good for you!), you’ll recognize Frank & Oak. The brand popped up in this week’s Holiday Party Style Suggestion, and they’ve also been featured in two Hunt Club Crate reviews. However, if you’re not familiar, they’re absolutely worth a look. The Canadian retailer has made its name delivering monthly collections featuring of-the-moment looks for not a lot of money (for the most part), and they’ve also upped their retail presence significantly recently with several Canadian locations and shops Stateside in Boston, Chicago and Washington, D.C. for now. You can get in on those collection releases via the brand’s Hunt Club, which offers free shipping and home try-ons, and that’s a great thing considering F&O offers some of the better -value shirting on the market. Luckily, the Plaid Flannel Shirt that you see here — part of this month’s Hunt Club collection — has hit the market just in time for chillier days ahead in December and beyond.

A slim buttondown collar keeps this shirt casual yet ready to pair with like-minded lapels.

A slim buttondown collar keeps this shirt casual yet ready to pair with like-minded lapels.

At just $48, it’s priced higher than something from the likes of J. Crew Factory but comes in lower than a blue J. Crew flannel shirt — yet one could argue the quality of Frank & Oak’s shirts is definitely on-par with the big-brother brand. This Frank & Oak shirt has just as many positives to it as a more expensive piece — combine a trim fit with a rather understated plaid pattern and a casual buttondown collar, and you’ve got a shirt that can pull double-duty under a herringbone blazer during the week and atop a henley and some navy cargo pants on the weekends. The slim collar is an oft-overlooked aspect of some shirts, too — in this case, that helps it pair just fine visually with a thin-lapel blazer (as most suiting leans that ways these days). And the color and styling potential is such that it’s a nice upgrade from a typical buttondown — injecting some pattern where you might normally go with a solid shirt is always a good call. Here’s hoping this finds its way into your stocking this holiday season — or into your closet before then.

What’s your shopping experience been like with Frank & Oak? What’s your take on this shirt and how would you style it?
